Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Mathematics is essential part of education on technical universities. It should be considered rather the method in the study of technical courses than a goal. Thus the goal of mathematics is train logical reasoning than mere list of mathematical notions, algorithms and methods.Students should learn how toanalyze problems, distinguish between important and unimportant, suggest a method of solution, verify each step of a method, generalize achieved results, analyze correctness of achieved results with respect to given conditions, apply these methods while solving technical problems, understand that mathematical methods and theoretical advancements outreach the field mathematics.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The contents of the course is the introduction of common mathematical concepts and interpretation of their relations in connection to the methods of solving selected problems of three basic parts of mathematics, according to which the learning material is structured. In Differential Calculus, the main motive is the preparation to general use of derivatives of real functions of one variable. Under Linear algebra is an emphasis on interpretation of the basic methods for solving systems of linear equations. In Analytic geometry, there are, based on vector calculus, described basic linear formations of three-dimensional Euclidean space and some tools to evaluate their mutual position from qualitative and also quantitative point of view.
